Gone to the Dogs
This weekend my family and I went to checkout the WeeRescue dogs at Petco. They had several smaller dogs, which is what Mom really wants, although I don’t think she’s really quite ready to get a new dog just yet. Still it was kind of fun to go checkout the pooches. Charlie had a nice weekend, he stayed home and slept some and then we sat him outside so he could bark at traffic and howl at small children. He loves to do that, although he also got to checkout the pug down the street. She’s vastly overweight but still smaller than he is, so she was like all underneath his legs and flopping about, while he was standing tall. Usually, he’s the small guy, so it was quite the twist. I’m really wanting to get a younger friend for Charlie if, for nothing else, than to keep him chipper. He likes having other dogs and kids around (and we just know I’m not going to have a kid anytime soon.)
It’s been rather nice out, although a bit hot and windy. A little too muggy for my tastes, but it’s better than the inevitable hundred degree days we will shortly face.
On Sunday, Steve came by and we studied a bit for upcoming exams, plus talked about articles we have coming up. I do miss academia just a tad; the cycle of having things “due” by a certain date and the enjoyment that comes with the end of the semester and the beginning of the new year. This studying thing is really quite a twist for me, but I’m enjoying it a bit.
I’m rather sleepy today, which is unusual, seeing as I got plenty of sleep over the weekend. I had the windows open so maybe I can blame it on my allergies or some such thing. Possibly, it’s due to a lack of coffee, which I can fix right away by making some.
In the paper this weekend was an ad for a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for (I’m not making this up) 2G’s. Hard to believe somebody would pay $2,000+ for a dog, but that’s how it goes, I guess. They are rather cute. Charlie would like a shorter friend but, perhaps, one who’s a little cheaper.
Until next time…
